Every now and then a celebrity says something that they will subsequently be asked about over and over and over again for years. And often it’s justified. I think Mel Gibson should be asked about whether he’s really an angry bigot (and why) until he finally leaves showbiz.
That said, Justin Bieber may have been a bit over his head in the new Rolling Stone interview that has just come out, where he talks sex, politics and even abortion in cases of rape. That’s right – a sixteen year old boy is being asked to weigh in on where he stands on abortion if someone was raped. It’s a subject that few adults can navigate artfully.
According to the interview, BieberÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â (like so many teen stars before him)Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â was asked about sex… and like so many before him, he gave the ubiquitous Britney Spears / Jonas Brothers answer…
“I don’t think you should have sex with anyone unless you love them…I think you should just wait for the person you’re…in love with.”
You know what?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â That’s what any teen pop star should say! No one wants to hear a sixteen year old kid say all they can do is think about sex. (Even though every sixteen year old boy is practically obsessed with the idea, but is smart enough not to talk about it in an interview) This is really the only acceptable answer.
Then, somehow, the topic turned to whether or not he was pro-life…saying: (direct quote via ONTD)
“I really don’t believe in abortion,” Bieber says. “It’s like killing a baby?” How about in cases of rape? “Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for aÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.”
Already, some media outlets have pulled out the line where he says “I wouldn’t be able to judge that.” And really – that line is key… And while the “everything happens for a reason” line – in this case, he’s including rape -Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â is regrettable, I have to remindÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â criticsÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â that this kid is SIXTEEN and he’s entitled to be pro-life without judgement, and he handled the question, for the most part, fairlyÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â well for a kid his age.
And yet – it’s likely that Bieber will be asked about this remark for many interviews to come. I think people need to cut him a break. He’s a talented guy that’s talking to Rolling Stone… not Meet The Press. When Bieber decides to run for President, (I’m guess that he’ll do that somewhere around his twenties) then we can get all up in his junk about where he stands on the legalization of marijuana and stem cell research and human trafficking. But for now, let the kid comb his hair and hold hands with Selena Gomez and make millions of dollars singing around the world.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.
On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.
Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do
Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)
Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.
The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.
The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.
